Wow. What a day! Never had such a complete, inclusive tour. Dino was great. He knows EVERYTHING about the Vatican and Rome. Day was over way too soon.

This tour was the first of four full days with Dino. Each day was more enjoyable then the past day. Prompt, polite, excellent English and very very knowledgeable. We just could not have asked for more!
What an amazing day we had in Rome with Dino. A well experienced and very knowledgeable guide. I would highly recommend Dino's services to any traveler visiting Rome. We had a one day visit by cruise ship & very limited time & wanted to experience as much as possible in a short time. Dino was brilliant, first the Colosseum definitely not to be missed! Then a well timed arrival at the the Vatican, Basilica & square where we were ushered past the crowds and straight to the amazing points of view.Excellent!

Rome and the Vatican were a highlight of our European tour. Our family wanted to concentrate on the Colosseum and Vatican, and Dino provided us with so much interesting historical information. He kept us engaged with visual props and wonderful stories and legends. He was also able to take us to a couple of extra sights, so that we were able to get a fairly comprehensive tour in our very small window of time (6-7 hours). A memorable highlight was our lesson in how to drink an espresso like a true Roman :)

Good tour but did not get to go to all the areas we wanted to see. For instance,discourage me to climbing to top of St Peter's whichI really wanted to do. There is a great shop in Vatican which we had been to before. We asked him to take out picture in front of St. Peter's. Dino is not an expert on taking pictures. The sire said he would buy tickets for forum and for me to reimburse him. He sends me an email how to buy them my self. it did not work so I had to buy them again when I got there.Not use agai
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for this review.As you know, we didn't climb the dome because it requests more than 1 hour; my task is to respect pre-fixed program and to avoid you to lose the ship, as it was done. I'm not a photographer but a professional tourist guide. I'm used to pre-purchase the tickets but this time you've requested me on the confirmed booking to buy on your own all the tickets with my help; it did work for the Vatican Museums, but it did not work for the Forum. The guide is not responsible for this.

Fantastic amazingly stupendous! Can't come up with enough great words! Had a fabulous time. Did the crazy busy day from cruise but didn't feel rushed and still saw everything we wanted and had a great lunch!. Dino is the guide to use!!! He gave us the perfect place for photos and was incredibly knowledgeable. Fabulous day was a highlight of our cruise!

Dino was an excellent guide. His PHD in Medieval Vatican History made him the perfect guide. We needed to stay at least another week to learn more from him. He was charming and enthusiastic. He took us off the tourist track for lunch which was fun and made a break from the crowds. His driver was prompt and friendly and the two of them worked together to give us a perfect day.

If you want to learn about the history of Rome, Dino is the guide for you. He is extremely knowledgeable and has a wonderful set of visual to help the historical sites come to life.

From my first contact with Dino until we parted this evening, it has been nothing but a pleasure dealing with him. We wanted to see Rome and its beauty and antiquity from the perspective of a Roman. Dino customized a day that was wonderful. His knowledge of Italian history and specifically Roman history is nothing short of incredible. We traveled with Dino from mid morning until evening and saw back street frescos, churches and the Jewish district along with the Colleseum. What a day, thanks to Dino!

Dino is an excellent guide and made our tour memorable. Although the van ride to Rome is long Dino's knowledge of history made the ride very interesting. If you want to learn more then just seeing the sights of Rome ask for Dino. You will not be disappointed.

We had a fantastic tour with Dino! He must be your "Top" guide. Because of him, we have decided to return to Rome, your beautiful city. Dino was very knowledgeable! His presentation was full of life and no one could have gotten bored! He is tops! Dino made our "dream" vacation become a vacation of a life time to remember! Thanks so much Dino! May we add that the driver was very friendly, and drove safely...that's very important! Fondest regards, Ruthie Bethea-Sholly and her husband Gary
